Tomizawa Tributes Appearing On Every Bike At Aragon

The MotoGP paddock was hit hard by Shoya Tomizawa's tragic death during the Moto2 race at Misano, and here in Aragon, everyone seems to be saluting the fallen Japanese rider in one form or another. Every bike on the grid is carrying a #48 sticker in honor of Tomizawa, with some carrying his number on their leathers or helmet, while others have stickers on the front mudguard (for an example, see Neil Spalding's photo from his Twitter page). Japanese rider Yuki Takahashi is wearing a black armband to commemorate his friend and compatriot.

I'd love one of these for my bike, if anyone hears of how non-paddock connected fans could get hold of one I'd be very interested to know.

...I have been a big fan of Shoya and would like to keep his memory alive.
